An Opossum (more commonly called Possum) is very similar to a raccoon. They leave damage to exterior entry points, and their droppings are of a similar size. Opossums can be a big problem around the house, especially for the family pets. Dog and cat food left outdoors can make for a battle zone between your pet and the opossum.
Central Florida opossums carry a variety of ectoparasites such as fleas, ticks, mites, and lice that may also bite humans. Fleas are very common on opossums. Flea eggs and larva are shed in areas frequented by opossums. Other diseases opossums may carry include tularemia, salmonella, toxoplasmosis, and coccidiosis. Infected animals may transmit Leptospirosis to humans and other animals through their urine and feces. Rabies is rare in opossums. Pets, horses, and other wildlife are also at risk for disease infection associated with opossums.
If you are experiencing problems with opossum infestation, we can help you. The staff of Animal Control Management will remove the opossum, biologically treat your attic for fecal and urine matter, and repair the entry points so that the problem will not reoccur.
Possum Removal Services
ACM offers comprehensive services to remove nuisance possums from the attic or interior of home and businesses. In addition, we offer humane possum trapping services for customers experiencing problems with possums on their property.
Possum Exclusion Services
Perhaps the most important service we provide is our ability to prevent possums from returning to your home or business. We accomplish this by making structural repairs or additions to remove the opportunity for animals to enter a building. In cases where animals have already taken up residence, our biological clean-up process will eliminate the scent markings animals use to communicate, thus removing any attraction for future animals to find ways to enter a contaminated space.
